Ridden and Rated: 5 Four-Piston Brakes
A curious comparison, some lesser known brands versus Sram and Magura but yet no Hopes. Hmmm

Brand new, still wrapped and largely unboxed 2017 Medium Demo S-Works frame. Reduced to sell as new bike on the way! Firm, no offers at this price. Comes with all original parts in box and unboxed: Frame - 11m carbon, S3 Geometry, carbon front triangle, full carbon link and rear end, FACT IS construction, PF30 BB, full internal cable routing, 135mm dropouts, lipped and sealed cartridge bearing pivots, replaceable derailleur hanger, 200mm travel Rear Shock - Custom Öhlins, high/low speed compression adjust, rebound adjust, 9.5x3" Headset - 1-1/8" upper, 1-1/2" lower, semi-integrated, cartridge bearings Bottom Bracket - SRAM, BB30, 83mm Seat Post - Thomson, alloy, straight, 12-degree clamp Seat Clamp - Specialized, 7050 alloy, single bolt, 36.9mm Bought to build but decided to build an Enduro bike. Price is firm, includes tracked P&P. Paying by PayPal incurs fees covered by buyer. Official Specialized spec: World-Cup-proven S-Works Demo 8 FSR as a frameset. It's constructed from our finest carbon fibre, FACT 11m, for unparalleled stiffness and strength. Meanwhile, it's been built aboard our ultra-capable S3 650b Geometry to ensure a roomy top tube for added control, ultra-short, nimble chainstays, a low bottom bracket that keeps you feeling planted, and a slack front end that provides the utmost in responsive handling at speed. For suspension, this Demo features 200mm of travel delivered via a game changing custom Öhlins rear shock. Altogether, it's a blank canvas of pure performance and potential speed. Build it how you want it, and race it like you mean it. - The frame features a full FACT 11m carbon fibre construction for low weight and heightened levels of strength and stiffness, which is amplified by its asymmetrical frame design that still leaves plenty of access. This has also been paired with our proven S3 Geometry that increases manoeuvrability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking on the biggest of hits in stride. - Custom Öhlins rear shock delivers unparalleled DH performance. It offers high/low speed compression adjust that stands independent of the rebound adjust, enabling you to fine-tune the shock for the track at hand. It's coil-sprung travel that stands without rival, and you won't find anywhere else. - Thomson alloy seatpost features one of the most durable constructions out there, without coming at the expense of a high overall weight

Less than six-month-old Shimano XT M8000 11 Speed 11-46t Cassette and XT chain with less than 150 miles on them. Cassette in excellent condition with exception of smallest 11 tooth cog which has a slight crack in it. This was discovered early on and has handled continued riding for the last 5 months, therefore I am confident it will hold moving forward. A replacement is circa 11 Euros from www.bikediscount.de Have original boxing and receipt for the cassette. Paypal fees extra. P&P extra.

So in great mechanical condition but with a few marks and one very slight ding (pictured with fat finger).

Currently set up as 15mm front and boost rear. Tech specs: - Built with Pro 4 hubs in either straight pull or standard spokes - Wheels machine built and hand finished in Barnoldswick - Optimised rim profile - Can be used with 2.3/2.5 wide tyres as well as 27.5+ - Tubeless compatible (requires tape and valves) - Boost or standard complete wheel options available - Shimano, Sram XD and Hope freehub body options available for rear wheel Includes the boost hub adapter and spare spokes (pictured). Any questions shout. Paypal payments please factor in the fee on total cost. Can be shipped at buyers cost, prefer pickup ideally.

@TimRidesBikes: Anyone else read this as Pot Noodle? Brits hopefully did, and will appreciate how odd but tasty that concept could be!
